The 18 cm high goblet "Exotic Animals" of the "Northumberland Service", is one of the most magnificent and visually stunning services in the history of the manufactory. The goblet "Exotic Animals" shows a rhinoceros, which was selected as a motif based on historical original templates from the Meissen archive and is bordered by a wreath of elaborate floral painting as in the original service. Genuine gold edges along the base and lid hem as well as pads on lid and knob frame the painting in representative shine. Each of the 129 pieces adorns its own animal, painted on the basis of historical engravings, but also woodcuts by Albrecht Dürer, such as that of a rhinoceros from 1515. For the limited edition of this historical decoration, the painting becomes effective on the extensive white areas of the goblet form from the first half of the 18th century. MEISSEN - a very special gift.
